Starting life as the bedroom solo project of Lili Trifilio back in 2015, Beach Bunny have gradually made a name of themselves through a string of self-releases EPs, culminating in their 2018 break out single, “Prom Queen”.  Now teaming up with the Mom+Pop label, the band are set to release their hotly anticipated debut album Honeymoon in February, and have this week shared the latest track from it, Dream Boy.

While the title might not scream cynicism, Dream Boy isn’t actually quite the loved up anthem you might imagine. Instead the track finds Lili grappling with the difficulty of moving on, “it’s a song about being jaded to the idea of falling for someone again after being heartbroken in the past”. Throughout the track, Lili seems to struggle with accepting this new romantic future, still scarred by previous trysts, “I tend to keep my heart locked water-tight All you gotta do is meet me after midnight.” With a video that is distinctly John Hughes in feel, the music too seems to go back to an almost nostalgic teen fantasy, blending grungy lead vocals with swooning harmonies and the sort of jaunty guitar lines Sacred Paws would be proud of. Fitting neatly into Honeymoon’s key theme of fighting for optimism and love over self-doubt and fear, Dream Boy is ultimately a celebrating of thrusting your heart out into the world and believing that one way or another, everything will work out for the best.

Honeymoon is out February 14th via Mom + Pop.
